I said before I was a cheerleader in high school. Every July we had this horrendous three day camp. Every muscle in my entire body was stretched to the limit. I could never walk for DAYS after the camp. Literally - I would be in so much pain, I wouldn't want to sit my butt down. I dreaded the thought of having to go to the bathroom - for fear I would get stuck on the toilet. It was that bad!
Well...Here I go again!!! I'm hurtin. Jenn and I ran on Monday. I managed to get about a mile and a half done and walked about a half a mile. Last night after the kiddos were bathed, I put on my workout clothes and hit the streets. I walked for 48 minutes total. I live in a rural community and the roads by my house are a mess of hills. Literally my entire walk home was up hill. I felt so good when I got home though. I thought for sure I'd walked four miles and was on my way to being skinny. As soon as I got home I stretched, did my ab roller (you'll hear about this terrible contraption later), and did some push ups (girly style with my knees bent). Then, I jumped in the car to clock my miles...
Guess how far I walked? Ready...2.8 miles. Here I thought I'd walked enough to go to town and back. All I walked was a measly 2.8? I felt like a dope. But then I realized - I haven't exercised in EONS! I'm proud of myself for even having gone that far - alone. No one was there to push me.
The point is - no matter where you go, how far you go, or how long it takes you - Exercise is wonderful! You'll feel thinnner and eventually look it. Just keep at it. Don't give up the ship - even if you can't feel your legs in the morning! Smile while you do it - You're Burning Fat! Yah!
P.S. I posted this picture in my bathroom - the place I look at myself naked in the mirror (ew). I didn't do this so my husband could gawk at a VS model (although he probably will...ha!). I did this because not only do I have a high school reunion coming up, but also a wedding. I love this dress. While it may not be ideal for either a wedding or the reunion - I heart it a lot and hope to someday be toned and fit enough to wear it!
I'm thinking a different color though - black or red - or something other than yellow!
